Kansas point guard Devon Dotson announces decision to test NBA draft status

Good for him. Why wouldn't any CBB player with NBA hopes not take advantage of this evaluation process and get experience working with an agent? It offers a great outside perspective on what they need to work on and introduces them to the business side of the sport. Imagine if we all got to sit in on college courses for a summer while we were in high school so we knew what to expect.

Breaking down the future of KU's basketball roster

I wouldn't get that excited about Dawkins. He had a fun run this year and almost beat a great team. But the guy is the same age as Self and has only made 2 NCAA TOURNEY APPEARANCES in 11 SEASONS! Self had been to 2 ELITE EIGHTS in 5 TOURNEY APPEARANCES in 10 SEASONS before taking over at KU (not to mention, the team he left behind at Illinois went on to the national title two seasons later). If you want a successful coach from the Dukie tree keep your eyes on Steve Wojciechowski. 2 TOURNEY APPEARANCES in only 5 SEASONS and he's more than ten years younger than Self and Dawkins. Even a guy like Wojciechowski still has a lot more to prove before taking over a blue blood program. We aim higher than that

Breaking down the future of KU's basketball roster

I think what most people are thinking is that it wouldn't be by "choice." And yes, there has been talk of him jumping to the NBA since 2008. Just because he and the NBA admin can't openly comment on it doesn't mean there isn't "talk." It's the same talk that surrounds Coach K, Calipari, etc. every year. I 100% guarantee you Self and his agent are contacted by multiple GM's every year, whether formally or informally. One exposed slip-up linked directly to Self and he not only faces huge NCAA penalties, he could be indicted on federal charges. Think about it, there are assistants HE KNOWS PERSONALLY that are going to jail...real jail...not NCAA jail. Hell, Sean Miller might be following them. That would spook anyone in their right mind. If he gets implicated in something major, he's gone, it'll just be a matter of where to.

Family Fun: NCAA pays family travel expenses for Final Four participants

Family Fun: NCAA pays family travel expenses for Final Four participants

You can totally offer a sarcastic remark. This policy has some MAJOR equity issues for students with family who need to travel from far away. Like Henry mentioned above, they should help the families book airfare first and then offer an equal amount for them to find lodging and food. I guarantee Lightfoot's family is spending a fraction of what our international players are going to spend to book airfare. It's a well-intentioned policy but equal treatment isn't always fair.

KU chancellor states confidence in AD Zenger, football coach Beaty

Haha my dad has been saying this since day one. John Currie made Zenger look like a fool while he was at K-State. I think we'll catch up with Bill Snyder Family Stadium by about 2045

'We just sputtered': Jayhawks dropped by Central Michigan, 45-27

I feel like the only stat line that matters, and will serve as an effective gauge of how this season progresses, is the turnover margin. We can have all the talent (or lack thereof) and solid coaching (or lack thereof) but if we can't protect the ball and keep giving up easy points...we probably won't win another game.

Tom Keegan: James McClinton deserves banner on Memorial Stadium exterior

Jon Cornish belongs there too!!! Put up a record setting 1500 rushing yards his senior season, carried us to our first Bowl game and victory, and is one of the most decorated CFL players in recent history. He defied everything I thought I knew about football and managed to run up the middle standing straight up. This is a fun comment thread!

Tom Keegan: James McClinton deserves banner on Memorial Stadium exterior

Great list but they left off the best LB trio in recent school history. Joe Mortensen, Mike Rivera, and James Holt excelled during one of the most challenging "Air Raid" seasons in Big XII history (they faced six 1000 yard RB's, Chase Daniel + Jeremy Maclin, Josh Freeman + Jordy Nelson). Also left off, our 1100 rushing yard RB Brandon McAnderson and our top 2 WR's Dexton Fields and Marcus Henry (both combined for more yards, receptions, and TD's than Briscoe and Meier combined). I will never forget what Dexton Fields did to K-State, Marcus Henry did to Oklahoma State, and Brandon McAndersen did to Texas A&M. What a great season, the whole team and coaching staff deserve banners!

6-10" and an 80% free throw shooter, I'm good with that. Also interesting to note the kid went from 185 to 245 lbs in 2 years, damn!!!
